    Real Vehicle Profiles

    Since this came up. The only pages we should allow for real-life vehicles are military vehicles. No random cars, no matter how notable. May as well write a rule for it.

    M1 Abram Tank question

    For a long time. In terms of total destructions, this tank has had it specified at 20 Gigajoules needed. When I tried the math with steel, it didn't reach as high. I assumed it stronger material, which I was told it was. Being made of Chobham composite armor. But I'm wondering does anyone know...

    Durability of the M1 Abrams

    Should the durability of the M1 Abrams be 9-A or 8-C? I am asking this because I do not think it makes any sense for the M1 to have two separate durabilities, the current one being 9-A normally and 8-C against cutting/piercing strikes. imo It should be 8-C, as it can shrug off grenades and RPGs...
